About this Bake

Birthday cake for a family friend who loves rats. The cake was a traditional Victoria sponge iced with sugarpaste and the rats were made of sugarpaste mixed with petal paste so that they set firmer.

Top tip

Make sure to use only a thin layer of buttercream to stick the icing to the cake because otherwise it ends up very sickly and buttercream will seep through when cutting the holes for the rats.
